Om mig

I am researcher at the Department of clinical neuroscience at Karolinska institutet and Head of Unit Continuing Education at the Center for psychiatry research (CPF).

My previous postdoctoral research concerned psychopathic traits in adult-and youth samples. My current research focuses on pedagogy in psychiatry.
